Notes on Tax Education

This section is where we will put short “articles” on a topic specifically related to tax education.  If you have such a note that you would like us to consider including in this section please forward it to Jim Barnett (jbarnett@uwaterloo.ca).  We are looking for items on effective teaching of a particular tax topic, the development of a specific tax skill or a pedagogical issue.
 
Whether you teach tax at a university, a college, in a professional program or at work it doesn’t matter; we would like to hear your ideas so everyone can benefit from your insights.
